    Very pleased

    Posted by Hannah Mercer, KS on 28th Mar 2017

    I ordered 15 plants and all lived but 2 so overall I am very pleased and can't wait to order more. They really made my area look good and its no longer bare and bland.

    This technique worked well, and I will definitely use this seller again when ordering plants. They packaged it all well.

Autumn Fern - Dryopteris erythrosora

The Autumn fern is hardy in zones 5-9. This colorful fern grows from two to three feet tall and spreads to about three feet wide. The Autumn fern grows to its mature size in five years. The plant prefers partial shade to shady areas in which to grow but can tolerate a little sun.

This unique fern remains an excellent choice when a landscape or garden needs a pop of color in a partially sunny to a shady area of the property. The plant is a semi-evergreen in the north and an evergreen in southern climates. If your garden requires a shade-loving ground cover, the Autumn fern remains an excellent choice.

Autumn fern remains very easy to grow in a perennial shade garden and adds a lovely lacy texture to the area where it is planted. During the springtime, Dryopteris brilliance adds a flashy golden orange color in its new growth. When the early spring new shoots mature, they turn a medium green hue with a red underside to the leaves. In the autumn, the foliage turns a stunning copper-red color. Several colors of fern occur at the same time, making the autumn fern an excellent choice for keeping your shade garden areas interesting throughout the year..

Autumn Ferns work wonderfully as a ground cover.

The Autumn fern’s fine texture combines well with other shade-loving plants such as hostas, heucheras or hydrangeas. And if you have issues with rabbits or deer eating your plants, choose an autumn fern for your garden, as both animals avoid the plant. The fern spreads slowly through spores and rhizomes. As long as the plant’s soil doesn’t become very dry, the autumn fern requires no specific care. Just put a little mild fertilizer around the plants in the spring, and a thin layer of mulch around the plants in the fall in colder climates. Autumn ferns are both disease and pest resistant.

Autumn Ferns can also be found growing wild in wooded areas.
